Message 2: Jobs: research positions in generation and anaphora

 RESEARCH POSITIONS IN NATURAL LANGUAGE GENERATION AND ANAPHORA.


Two positions are available to work on a joint project between the
Universities of Edinburgh (HCRC - Human Communication Research Centre)
and Brighton (ITRI - Information Technology Research Institute). The
aim of the project is to incorporate recent results in corpus analysis
and psycholinguistics in theories of discourse structure and its
effects on the use of pronouns, definite descriptions and proper
names. The resulting theories and algorithms will be applied to two
natural language generation systems currently under development at
Edinburgh and Brighton.

Both HCRC and ITRI offer excellent environments for this kind of
research; information about current projects and other activities at
the two locations can be found at http://www.hcrc.ed.ac.uk/ and
http://www.itri.bton.ac.uk/. The participants in the project are an
interdisciplinary team of psycholinguists, computational linguists,
and discourse analysts.

We are looking for researchers with proven experience in natural
language generation, anaphora and discourse, with a strong interest in
psycholinguistics and with good programming skills. Both junior and
senior positions are available. The grant includes funds for
attendance at relevant workshops and conferences.

For further information about the project, contact Dr Massimo Poesio
or Prof Donia Scott at the addresses below. Formal applications must
be made to Massimo Poesio, and must include a CV and one or two
relevant publications.

Deadline for applications is 30th September 1996.
